Leeds United are in the mix for a top six spot this season in the Sky Bet Championship, despite a mixed season thus far.
With the January transfer window just around the corner, manager Thomas Christiansen will be looking to add to his squad to give them the best chance of a top six finish.
How much do you think Leeds need to spend in order to make sure they finish in the coveted play-off spots?
Perhaps around £10m.
It’s hard to say with the market in the way it is but I think the Whites need to address a couple of areas.
A new left-back should be high on their priorities whilst another central midfielder is also needed.
There’s even case to get after another striker.
You can’t put an exact figure on it, but for what they need you’d be looking at over £10m.
I think Christiansen needs a goalkeeper, left-back, centre-back, centre-midfielder and a striker. Quite a lot!
As well as that, they can’t be squad fillers, they have to be quality to come straight in and do a job in the team. The reality is they probably won’t do all this business, but that’s where they’re short in my opinion.
Leeds made big-money from the Chris Wood sale in the summer so I don’t see why Christiansen shouldn’t have £10-15m easily available
£15m? It is hard to really say.
For me, Joe Bryan should be Leeds’ top target, but the Bristol City left-back won’t come cheap.
Leeds are also short of an experienced striker, and you can’t ignore their ongoing problems in the goalkeeping department.
Whatever the fee, serious money would have to be spent to secure a place in the play-offs.
They need about three new players, so should expect to be spending around £7 million to get themselves into the play-offs.
A central defender, midfielder and striker will be on the wishlist of Christiansen in the new year, and that fee could rise depending on just how ambitious the Dane is.
